Good luck with your bad day.

Also, Sports News Connection points us to a piece by Bill James on the 50 best young players in the game today.

James:
"We are sitting in a historic bubble of young talent. ... Arguably, there is more outstanding young talent around right now than at any other moment in baseball history -- not more per team, but there are more teams. The moment at which there had been the most young talent in baseball, before 2007, was 1964."

There is only one Red Sock -- at #32.

I don't understand, why didn't Papelbon make the list? Or Ellsbury?

redsock said...

James says: "We're not talking here about prospects or minor league players. We're discussing proven major league players who are still young."

Ellsbury is likely still considered a prospect.

Not sure why Bot -- a proven major league palyer -- would not rate. Maybe closers don't have *that* much of an impact, in James's view.

I went to the Hall of Fame this weekend, and 2007 championship stuff was still pretty scarce outside the giftshop. They did, however, have Buchholz's no-hitter up on the wall of no-hitters, which was sweet.
